½ cup loosely packed fresh, pitted Medjool dates

½ cup dried apple rings

½ cup raw cashews

¼ cup whole rolled oats

2 tablespoons oat bran, optional for more fiber

½ teaspoon ground ginger

2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon lemon zestProcess:

Combine dates, apples, cashews, oats, oat bran, ginger, lemon juice and lemon zest in a food processor and pulse a few times to break up the larger pieces.

Process for 1-2 minutes, scraping down the sides a couple of times: First it will all come apart and get finer and finer, finally holding together in a clump of “dough” that will roll around in the processor.

When the ingredients are well incorporated into a dough, roll into quarter-sized “truffles” or flatten the mixture evenly into a 5×7-inch Pyrex dish (3 cup) and slice (slicing is smoother if chilled for at least 1 hour).Yield: approximately 15 large or 20 small truffles or 8 pan barsChocolate Coconut TrufflesRecipe Credit: Mary Weaver, Owner, Newport CooksIngredients:
